To help stem the financial bleeding of the U.S. Postal Service, Postmaster General John E. Potter on Tuesday announced a plan that may lead to rate increases and an end to Saturday deliveries.
The agency faces a $238 billion shortfall during the next decade as Americans increasingly opt for the Internet over the mail system.
The Postal Service also must deal with increasing health care and delivery costs, according to a statement.
